The Center for Public Integrity’s Justice Obscured project has sought to penetrate the veil of secrecy surrounding the financial holdings and activities of the nation’s most powerful judges. In “Corporations, pro-business nonprofits foot bill for judicial seminars” we looked at the top corporate sponsors and right-wing think tanks that sponsored seminars for some of the nation’s most powerful judges. We evaluated the disclosure rules for judges in state supreme courts and found them sadly lacking. We then looked at U.S. appellate court judges and found more than two-dozen instances of financial conflicts of interest.
